I just found this book in my house and have no idea where it came from, so I was surprised to see it was BC-registered. It's a small, very thin little volume; maybe it had slipped inside the pages of another book. In any case, I just read it, and it's a fun story, though it's a serial and it's only the first part. Phineas MacGuire, 4th-grade scientist, is dismayed when his mom assigns him the task of cooking dinner for the family each night -- until he realizes that cooking is all about science.

This book came home with me (eventually). Not sure why. Not sure if I will read it.

The Ultimate Read and Release Challenge theme for July is Verbs. I decided to just do books with "ing" verbs in the title. While digging through my piles, I came across this one. So I read it.

A kind of cute story about a 4th grader who loves science and discovers the science of cooking. Well written and engaging. I bet the series is a fun one.

This book is going to meet-up with me in honor of the first attempt at a theme -- "ING". Hopefully it goes home with someone else.
